This is very cool. I am glad I found, and thanks for supporting Android.

OK, here is the start to my Wish List for the app.

1. Please add the ability to enter the custom fields, and check numbers. I know I am old fashioned but that is how I have it setup.

2. I would like the ability to turn off the Overall Balance in the Account Overview.

3. Transactions View would be nice to at least see the Payee and check number.

Well that is it for now. Again thanks guys this is awesome!

I NEED the same things, the mobile version doesn't do much good if I can't see who I paid. I upgraded the online to the premuim version so I could have these features.

So far everything else is great!

If possilbe, please consider:

1) the auto populate feature when entering tranactions.
2) A Widget or Two for entering and/or Tracking finances
3) a little more polish... (but it still looks great!)

Thank you for all the hard work and wonderful application. Without Clearcheckbook, I dont think I would be financially ballanced.

-Thank you!

I would really like to see the reoccuring transactions/reminders on the phone.
And after using for a while now, it really needs its own numeric popup for entering amounts.

I would REALLY like to see the ability to transfer between accounts as a feature in the Android application.

I'm so surprised there is no 'Transfer' feature. Why not??

I signed up for this service just because I wish to carry my finances on the go, but after a bit of use I'm finding the app a bit slow (keeps showing me loading screens) and the UI could really see some improvements, right now it is really basic.

It would be good if a ClearCheckbook employee gave us an estimate on when the Android app will be updated, or gave us some information on what are they working on for it.

Anyways, it's a great service, I'm liking it so far.

I entered a transaction yesterday on my Android phone and it took literally nine minutes to load the transaction, ie, I hit the submit button at 6:38 and the "Loading Transactions" screen stayed until 6:47.

I was using a very fast 4G connection and all of my other apps were quick to load, etc.

I know eh? I don't even care if the UI is basic, it does what it needs to do. If I need a really detailed look I'll just log in the website. But the speed is really important, sometimes the app is just unusable because it gets so slow.

I really like the black background and I love the simplicity of your app, however would like to be able to transfer funds between accounts and support category splits. I track my expenses very carefully and often when I'm shopping, one store's receipt will fall under many different categories. That's important for correctly budgeting and forecasting funds. Thanks!

I would LOVE to be able to see my envelopes on my phone. That way I know how much I have saved for a specific thing.

Otherwise LOVE the app. Moved from ipod and an awesome app to an android and I was worried I would not find one I liked. My husband even likes this one because he does not have to use my device to enter his transactions, he can do them from his computer (he just has a basic phone)

I literally live in the middle of nowhere, I need offline access when I am at the local gas station, and it can upload the new transaction when I get home over wi-fi, or the next time I open the app in a networked area. Other than that I am a happy new user for the last 2 hours!

I've been a user of the website service for a few years now and the free version is great! The best I've used so far! The app, however, needs a little more work:
- Password/PIN protection - so that anyone with access to my phone or tablet cannot access the app unless they know the pin;
- Offline management with later online sync - I simply avoid using the app because is a lot slower syncing the changes;
- Auto-complete according with previous history (as available through the website);
- Possibility to change the currency being displayed - I see £ but would love to see €

These are the major features I would love to see implemented in the app, and for which I wouldn't mind paying for.

Keep up the good work!

I'm liking this app so far. The only two features i would love to see added are. 1. A way to Archive Jived transactions. 2. A way to input/queue transactions when offline.

The app is great for a quick overview and entering transactions that I might forget later, but would be more useful if:

1. Would like to be able to post a bill that hit the bank early. It appears you can post transactions if they show up separately, but not sure if the bill gets marked "Paid". And some bills only show up once in reminders, not twice.

2. Would like more than 2 splits on transactions - not necessarly unlimited, but one or 2 more would be helpful.

3. Ability to hide jived transactions

It's true that these options, as well as some tools, are available on the mobile version of the full website, but it would be nice to do more by just popping into the app.

I think the most important thing is the offline mode this should be added.

One of the primary reasons I subscribed to this was because I wanted the ability to input transactions on my phone and through a PC. So far so good!

I use envelope budgeting to keep track of how much I have spent in specific categories. I like to keep up with this on my phone for easy viewing. However, the app doesn't show you the envelopes on the budget page. It just shows the regular budget you setup. I'd like to see the budget envelope added to the app.

Even better, allow us to add "widgets" to the app main page like we do on the website. That way, people can customize their app interface to the way they track their funds.
